I have been having fun helping my pets (two garden snails) in their reproductive goals. It has been quite interesting confirming the fact they will not reproduce unless they have earth available to bury their eggs. 3 years ago
Calculating the heat capacity is not quite easy if you lack a thermometer. However, it is not impossible: I have had fun calculating such things using a very simple equipment.
The conclusion: if your heating does not work this winter, and you have to choose between a 20 kg rock at 80 ºC and a 20 kg ham at the same temperature… the ham will get you warm longer! 3 years ago
After some months of experimental drought, I made a small experiment. I checked if it was able to see the International Space Station with the naked eye, as some people stated. Using the website heavens-above.com and the alarm of my mobile phone I was able to see it this morning! It has been a great experience. The full story is available in my blog.

So, here is the second experiment of the month. Olympic games are over… and I have just posted Games about the olympic games to my blog, something about the probabilities of big countries to get more medals. It came out that:
1) a big country has more chances to get medals, because it has more people to choose and train.
2) but for the individual, being in a big country is usually counterproductive, probably because there is more internal competition to qualify for the Olympics.

I have just posted a new experiment to my blog, about my attempts to distinguish between olive oil and sunflower oil with closed eyes and blocked nose. Posting my small (but interesting) experiments is very motivating! 6 years ago
To motivate myself about this, I have started a blog speaking about my small experiments. For the moment there is just one entry (probably as in most of the blogs you will find around), and I don’t even speak about an experiment, but about what is an experiment…
